Bullying has gained national attention as of late. What do you do to make sure your kids aren't the bully or the victim of bullying?
Bullying is a big deal in modern society. Seemingly every day a story of bullying is in the news—usually a victim has been pushed too far and something tragic happens. Just last week a video went viral of a longtime victim of bullying in Australia snapping and body-slamming the kid who had tormented him.

When the kids are graded on their artistic ability, this mother has to wonder: should they be?
Art and music were two of my favorite classes when I was in elementary school. Not only did they provide a break from the monotony of math and social studies, but it was a time to get up, move, and be creative. I still remember the smell of the poster paint that followed me home after every designated art day and the way the recorder made my lips tingle when I played it in music. Most kids love it. Mine do not. Progress report time rolled around once again. I really feel they should rename these due to the fact that they only send the report home when NO progress is being made—an UNprogress report, if you will. I receive one every period from E’s music teacher with the checkmarks in the same places: will not sit still, does not respect …
